A Summer Fête – Special Edition

Audrey's Summer fêteHere in Canada we have long, cold and dreary winters. I’m not a winter person, so summer can’t come fast enough. Once the temperature heats up a bit I love to invite people over for outdoor BBQ’s, dinner on the lawn or just a casual picnic. The season is so short, I think we need to take advantage of it as much as we can – despite fighting bugs and at times humid temperatures.

The other week we hosted a backyard birthday party and I decided to fancy it up a little with some matching rental chairs and a white table cloth. Little touches had a big impact and all of us had a great time. Instead of creating a picture heavy post, I decided to gather our summer fête in a book, including the 10 recipes we made, some outdoor party tips, planning tools and DIY ideas. I also asked a couple of my blogging friends to contribute some outdoor party wisdom. This serves as a great memory for me, but I hope it serves you as a little guide – some inspiration to host your own party. Have a look and let me know how you enjoy your summer parties!
